Mt husband and I just spent 2 nights at the Topia Inn over Memorial Day weekend. We stayed in the Zen room. We did not have an opportunity to meet Caryn, but Nana was delightful. She provided us with the perfect amount attention while giving us our "space". Breakfast we imaginative and delicious. The inn is directly on the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail which is one of the nicest trails we've been on. We even came away with some new ideas for green living. We definitely plan on returning.

We stayed for just one night, but the inn was so lovely and relaxing, I wish it was longer.

Although described as an Inn, the Topia Inn is a B&B with wonderful food and remarkable and diverse "green" rooms and amenities. A wonderful stay, pleasant and relaxed. And very close to the Museum of Contemporary Arts.

Our first visit left me thinking that Topia was too good to be true; we visited again recently and found it to be just as wonderful an experience. Calm, peaceful surroundings; the cleanest rooms I've ever experienced; atmosphere that supports and promotes health; attention to detail and personal request that goes above and beyond; we forgot to lock the door and since we didn't feel compelled to check (and recheck) didn't discover it until morning. While I don't recommend forgetting to do so, it speaks to the level of comfort we experienced. We already have our next stay planned.

My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary at the Topia Inn and it was wonderful! The owners took great care into renovating the place so that every aspect was as eco-friendly and toxin free as it could be, a rare gem! And it showed, it was very clean, excellent air quality, and free of allergens which was a nice treat for my husband who suffers from allergies. I was a little concerned reading other reviews that the staff would be a bit fussy, but we had no problems at all. We normally take off our shoes at home so that wasn't a problem and I loved not having to pack toiletries and getting to use their quality products, it made packing so much easier! And the bath tubs with the jets were SO relaxing! Breakfast was all organic and delicious! It wasn't a huge portion, but definitely at the top of our list for quality ingredients and taste for B&B breakfasts. The town of Adams (where it's located) dosen't have much going on, but they are close to lots of good hiking, swimming, biking, museums, movies and good restaurants. It rained most of the time we were there, but we still had plenty of things to keep us entertained! We definitely plan on going back, maybe it will be our anniversary treat every year!
